MY Big Fat Fabulous Life star Whitney Way Thore revealed her hurt at now ex-fiance Chase Severino fathering a child with another woman.
The 36-year-old reality star, who announced their split on May 22, said that life has been challenging, since she found out the news for herself.
“I learned this news myself fairly recently," she told People on Tuesday.
"It wasn’t something I’d been sitting with for months and months, but once I saw rumors about our relationship — after I finally deleted our photos on Instagram, for example — I knew I just wanted to get it over with and announce it so I could fully start to move on."
She told the publication how she's reacted to finding out that Severino hadn't just cheated but would become a father in the fall.
“It’s a difficult thing to navigate – honestly, I would have rather not said it, just to avoid the inevitable backlash and gossip, but at the same time, people in their lives already knew of course and a baby isn’t something that can remain private in the future,” the TLC star said.
“I definitely didn’t want it to look like I wasn’t aware of the full situation, but at the same time, I truly just don’t want the drama and the gossip.
“I’m hurting and all of that just compounds it. I’m looking forward to a more positive future," she told the publication.
She explained that since she revealed the news, she's found it difficult.
“It’s difficult for strangers to have such strong opinions about something so personal, and even though so many people have been incredibly nice and sympathetic, it doesn’t really make the day to day much easier,” she told them.
She told the publication that she has had the support of friend Buddy Bell, during lockdown.
“Luckily, Buddy has been with me for the last month,” she says. “I still haven’t left the house due to coronavirus, so he grocery shops and cooks and it’s been great not to be physically alone during this time since I’m not able to see my family and other friends.”
Last month the star chose to announce the news of their break-up with a photo of a black screen and detailed caption, which explained Severino is expecting a child with another woman.
"Chase and I are no longer engaged," the 36-year-old reality star wrote at the time.
"After experiencing a lot of ups and downs and still living apart, Chase reconnected with a woman with whom he has had a long history."
She added that her former fiancé only "recently" shared the news that his relationship "resulted in a pregnancy."
"Chase will be a father in October," Whitney, who got engaged in October 2019, revealed.
